Rane expands Hal with Rad26 remote
Rane has added the Rad26 remote, which requires one shielded category cable, to its Hal family of digital signal processors.
The unit provides enough I/O and control to support one room in a HAL audio system that requires local audio line input (smartphone, laptop, MP3, DVD); one or two microphone or line-level inputs; amplifier outputs for ceiling speakers; level control and source selection.
It provides a room with a dual 4-watt amp, end-user control via a customisable colour display, a dual universal audio I/O interface and headphone output and line-level input jacks for local needs. Three logic inputs and three active-low outputs add to control capabilities. The amp permits a single channel option of 8 watts into 8 Ω.
Applications include classroom inputs for teacher’s mic and local inputs; presentation source and volume with projector and screen control; meeting room with AV teleconferencing and speakers; spa with BGM, local music input and stereo ceiling speakers; hotel or cruise ship room TV and local input sound system.
Because the Rad26 is connected to a HAL system, each room can select local or system sources and permits normal, priority or emergency paging.
